14 May 2021: Lending news update

We’ve been very busy processing lots of orders for books for this term. To help schools get their term 2 orders to us, we’re extending this term’s loan order period for another week (now closes 11 June). This means term 3 orders will open on 14 June.

Changes are ahead

Our other news is that we’re making changes to our lending service so that it’s more flexible and easier for schools to order books.
